with israel, and the united states. and anybody else belonging to the u.n. just for some context here, though, the plo has been a permanent observer. that's been their status since 1974. and that has given palestinians the right to speak out and be heard at the assembly. but it doesn't give them a right to vote. richard roth, who covers the u.n. extensively and is our cnn favorite on this topic, is there to really give a little more context as to what they wanted to and what kind of status it would give them and how far up in status it would actually elevate them. richard, tell us what it means. >> okay. first, just to clarify, hamas not really here with the palestinians. the palestinian president abbas is in new york, met with the secretary general last night. yes, this is, as usual with the u.n., words matter. sometimes one letter in a document could be a time bomb. what we have here is the u.n. upgrading later today the status of the palestinians here. they are in effect going to become sort of a state within a group of states. but really, as you mentioned, they won't have the right to vot
. new york congressman steve israel as well as my man that i like to talk about in the future of the republican party, mike murphy. righto my first reads. it took president obama exactly 12 minutes longer to win his second term than a first one. we called the 2000 race at 11:00. this time at 11:12 p.m. we're not even 12 hours removed from that moment yet and it's clear that the second obama term will face enormous challenges in trying to resolve the country's if iscal future and create a governing coalition to make that happen in washington but, first, let's look at how the president made his victory happen. the president put together a decisive electoral college victory winning at least 303 votes to romney's 206 and at this hour in florida where the president leads by it looks like at this moment 50,000 votes, remains too close to call where we think the vote remains should favor the president. those folks in miami-dade are going to start counting votes when they get to work this morning. but those margin of victory was smaller than in 2008. in the end demographics and a stro
on in the middle east because they are getting one biased israel view. i can tell you what is going on. i love president assad. i stand with them. there has always been peace there. the women wear jeans, they'd drive, they vote. it is more of a democracy and a lot of ways and here. host: what do you think policy should be regarding syria? 5000 people killed in the uprising. caller: those rebels are not syrian. they were planted there. it is really funny. when obama put troops into israel, i think he did all of this for reelection. i am relieved mitt romney did not get elected even though i did not vote for either. i think obama might do the right thing and cut ties with israel. host: we will go to a report actually on syrian president assad. this in "usa today." he said "i am not a puppet." we have a few minutes left on the first segment of "the washington journal." we will go to pete in rhode island on the democrat line. caller: good morning. i would like to see him focus on the economy. host: specifically what part? caller: let's go with the fiscal cliff coming up. my thoughts were my belief
in israel that we're following for you where a bus in tel aviv exploded this morning with passengers on board. information is still coming in. we have this video that's in to us. initial reports indicate as many as 10 people were injured. three people were taken to the hospital with moderate to severe injurie injuries. the bus was on a busy thoroughfare around noon local time there across from the military headquarters in tel aviv. one witness describes the bus as completely charred. we're taking a look here at the video ourselves. officials say they are searching for a suspect who is believed to have planted the device on the bus. according to israeli officials, the last bus bombing was in 2004. this, as secretary of state hillary clinton is in the middle east trying to defuse the explosive outbreak of violence between israel and palestinians in gaza. she met palestinian president abbas earlier this morning and will sit down with egypt's president in cairo. we'll be following that as well. >>> all right. coming up on "morning joe" -- former national security adviser dr. brzezinski.
this could hurt the chance of ever reaching peace with israel. >> reporter: her concern is that the vote would rise tensions with israel president palestine is likely to get their way. they see this upgraded status with the united nations would be a significant step toward independent statehood. this is video from palestine tv of rallies ahead of the united nations vote. after their failed bid last year today they are trying a different approach. they are asking for nonmember swerver status like the vatican. >> for the world to start to rectify a grave historical injustice that the palestine ans have undergone beginning the creation of the state of israel in 1948. >> the un vote comes after a week of a cease fire. the president needs the vote to boost his own authority but the united states said any hope of restarting peace talks between israel and palestine would be set back. reporting live from washington dc. allison burns. >> all right. today the president invites romney for lunch at white house. during his victory speech election night he said he would reach out to romney. white h
cooperation between israel and gaza in the near future. >> the united states welcomes the agreement today for a cease-fire in gaza, for it to hold, the rocket attacks must end. a broader calm returned. the people of this region deserve the chance to live free from fear and violence and today's agreement is a step in the right direction that we should build on. >> this news comes after more than a week of violence that claimed 140 palestinian and 5 israeli lives. obviously, this day belongs to the israelis and palestinians. but americans should also look at today as proof that we got it right on election day. i want you to take a look at that scene again. that moment lasted just a few minutes. but it represents a week of slow, deliberate diplomacy by the president, secretary clinton and obama's foreign policy team. and a lot of patience. there was no sabre rattling, no caustic words, no cheap shots. for that you needed to turn to the republicans. >> if this god forbid conflict escalates, again, it is a sign of american weakness throughout the region. before in crises henry kissinger or jim
israel. the general assembly of the united nations is almost certain to grant the palestinians a status upgrade. this is a step that palestinians hope will eventually lead to recognition as an independent state. take a look at the crowd that's gathered there. this is yasser arafat square in ramallah. ♪ their president mahmoud abbas live. the vote is scheduled to be happening two and a half hours from now. this is something that israel and the u.s. have spent months lobbying against. i want to bring in jim clancy to put this in perspective here from cnn international. jim, first of all, what does this mean in very plain terms, for the palestinians if they get this upgraded status at the u.n., the significance? >> somebody calls them a state. they are allowed to join international organizations. they're even allowed to join the international criminal court. now, this is what worries israel and the united states because in doing so, they could file complaints with the court about the occupation, how palestinians are being treated. right now they have no such recourse. this is what could
. their relationship goes back years and years and years. in fact, i was reading one of the israeli newspapers. israel today ran no fewer than four opinion pieces just yesterday endorsing romney. what happens now, christiane, in this relationship between netanyahu and obama? >> well, what happens now is that obama is the president of the united states. netanyahu is the prime minister of israel. and they have to work together. these are two countries which stand side by side. there in no doubt in anybody's mind that the united states stands firmly for the security of israel, the intercommunity knows. it yes, there has been a cool relationship between netanyahu and obama, however netanyahu did congratulate the president this morning and said the strategic reliance between israel and the u.s. is stronger than ever. i will continue to work with president obama in order to assure the interests that are vital to the security of the citizens of israel. so, again, no doubt where the united states stands the strong security and protection of israel. the real issue of course that has divided them, one, iran. a
